Kate, We had a busy weekend. My favourite kind of weekend! Full of family, good friends and good food. Unfortunately, that meant that house improvements were pushed to the back burner. The mantel is still not installed but I did buy some paint and a few canvases for Peter and I to attempt some art to be hung next to it. This may or may not turn out well but the process of painting with Pete will surely be worth it! I'm pretty confident in his ability to come up with some abstract brilliance. (If only to his mothers eye).
I also ended up making that quinoa recipe from food52 that I blogged about a few weeks back. It was great the first day but ho hum the second day. I usually like to make a quinoa that lasts 2 or 3 days in the fridge. It's still something I will definitely make again though, just in a smaller quantity.
I also filled my pretty new pale pink vase from peaks & rafters with yellow tulips. Ahhhh, the power of flowers to brighten a home and my mood!
